Uh-oh! Not good!
Chris Daughtry has reportedly been sued by three of his former bandmates, who claim in their lawsuit that they were cheated out of some serious royalties!
According to Ryan Andrews, Scott Crawford and Mark Perry, who were in the band Absent Element with the American Idol contestant, he began writing Home while he was still making music with these guys - and they contributed to the production of it!
The lawsuit reads:
"All four members wrote music and lyrics for Absent Element's songs, collaborated on the arrangement and recording of those songs, regularly consulted with each other on matters relating to the business of the band, and made partnership decisions based on majority votes."
Yeesh! If true, definitely not cool at all!
But Daughtry claims:
"I am very hurt by these false accusations. The songs listed in this lawsuit were written solely by me and no one else and at this time, I have no further comment."
Hmm…well we think the courts will be deciding that, Sir!
Here's hoping that you're not proven wrong!
